Kevin Nolan 'It's the biggest game of the season'

The Magpies boss said “It’s the biggest game of the season because it’s the next one,

“We are only playing for three points, but if someone said we could have five then it is the biggest game.

“But it’s not. It’s now about us trying to pick up as many points as we can from now until the end of the season to achieve the ultimate dream, which is promotion.

“We’ve given everyone a dream when, in the summer, nobody thought we would be in this position.

“That’s what people have got to realise. We have three points to play for and if we get them then it would be massive.

“That would get us closer to Wycombe and we just cannot worry about anybody else.

“We had great day against them earlier in the season. We got away with it with two late goals but it told you a lot about us.

“We went 2-0 up and they got back to 2-2 and it showed what they are about too.

“They’ve done it all season long and are a very good side. But we managed to get the win in the end.

“I remember being with Gareth Ainsworth at the end of the game and he was gutted, but very complimentary about us like I was about them.

“We felt it would be a good season for both of us and we’ve been proven right.

“They’ve done fantastically well to be where they are. It will be tough but it’s one we are thoroughly looking forward to.

“But hopefully we can come out on top.

“It’s been a tough few days because of the loss, but what this team has proven is their togetherness, will, character and fight,” he said.

“We’ve have been good at responding and we’ve got to do that again.

“I am not one of those managers who because we’ve lost one game will start punishing players.

“If something needs to be done or said, it will be.

“We don’t go day by day here. We do everything for a reason. People are quite quick to forget the success by doing what we have done with this squad.

“And the only excuse we had on Sunday is that we weren’t good enough.

“It’s now down to us to put right the wrongs.”
